SINGAPORE (Feb 28): Buy right

Let there be light

White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire by La Prairie is a rich, delicate cream that enhances the unique architecture of the eye — an area that has contours, angles and shadows. The White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire contains an illuminating molecule Lumidose, which targets grey, brown, yellow, red and violet chromatic disturbances that can dull skin’s natural light and boosts the reflection of light from the skin. The cream helps to restore firmness and elasticity of the skin around the eye area, contributing to a younger-looking skin that is better able to reflect light.

A sound system

The lightweight h.ear in 3 Truly Wireless WF-H800 headphones by Sony are built with an ergonomic structure that fits securely in your ears. Music lovers will not be disappointed with the clear sound that ranges from low beats to high vocals. When it is fully charged, you get eight hours of music and if that is not enough, there is a pocket-size case that allows you to recharge on the go. Costs $299 and available at Sony Stores, Sony Centres, Sony authorised dealers and on Lazada.

Hit the great outdoors

It has been said by doctors that the sun kills germs. So get out there and enjoy some fresh air with the help of Timberland. The collection leads the way in sustainability efforts such as the Brooklyn Leather & Fabric Super Oxford that has an upper made from ReBOTL fabric with premium leather sourced from a LWG Silver-rated tannery, which is audited by the independent Leather Working Group based on energy use, waste production and water treatment. Finally, the AeroCore Energy System in the sole gives constant support, active cushioning and dynamic flex at every step of the way. 

Woman power

As women get savvy about timepieces, they want a piece to invest in. Vacheron Constantin recognises this and has launched the Égérie collection that is for women. Some of its pleasing aesthetic designs include a pleated effect on the dial that looks like a piece of exquisite fabric used on a haute couture gown. Also pleasing to the eye is the off-centred placement of the crown. The dial features a mother of pearl moon peeping behind a cloud. The interchangeable strap allows you to keep your look fresh everyday as you match the strap to your outfit. To note: Égérie or Egeria was an author in the early 380s who documented her journey alone through the Holy Land; something unheard of at that time.

Shine on

Instead of creamy body moisturiser, try the Le Nobili shimmering oil by Acqua de Parma that contain brightening properties that makes one feel like being wrapped in a thin luminosityboosting veil. The oils release the perfumed tones of the floral fragrances of Rosa Nobile, Magnolia Nobile and Peonia Nobile — flowers found in an Italian garden.
